As a fan of Benefit's original Porefessional balm primer, I was excited to try their latest product in the pore-fighting range.

Agent Zero Shine is a completely different beast to Porefessional, it's a powder product to be used as a last step in your makeup application.

You can still use the Porefessional balm to minimise the appearance of pores before applying foundation, if you wish, then finish off the look with the Porefessional powder.

The product is housed in a very innovative little tube, which has a built-in brush, very handy for applications on the go. You can tap the powder into the lid of the tube, the dip the brush in the powder before buffing into your skin.

This does a great job of mattifying skin, leaving an airbrushed, smooth finish. I find it does a really good job of blurring the appearance of pores on my nose, and keeping shine at bay throughout the day.

If you have oily or combination skin, this is definitely a product that could come in handy.
